Blistering Heat , Sept 2020
|Stepped outside one morning around 7:30AM and was greeted by this.|
|Too hot to go anywhere.|
|Relagated instead to the house and garden.|
|Sharing my tangle of greenery, "Dustbunny" naps in the sun.|
"Jackson", like his sister Dustbunny, were adopted as babies from a feral cat colony.
|So far, my horse-manure garden dressing hasn't produced any fungi, just more weeds.|
|In September, three more immature mantids showed up in my garden.|
|The first one was mature enough to be relocated along a nearby stream.|
|It quickly exited its temporary terrarium home.|
|In addition to a riparian habitat, a small rural community is situated nearby.|
|On a dull, overcast morning, walked a ways on Calero Creek Trail.|
|Gals out for a morning ride.|
|"Havoc" demonstrating the "sit!" command. The only command he obeys.|
|Usually a favorite to photograph, this Black Oak has very few acorns this year.|
|The Ohlone considered Black Oak acorns to be tastier than other types of acorns.|
|And their leaves color-up nicely in Autumn.|
|Hooray! Have finally joined the International Cloud Appreciation Society!|
|Most sky views are taken from my backyard|
|Front yard too!|
|Sure looks like an elephant with upraised trunk to me!
Go TEAM TRUMP!
